HOW DID THIS GET MADE?
Have you ever seen a movie so bad that it’s good? Paul Scheer (The League & Veep), Jason Mantzoukas (The League & The House) and June Diane Raphael (Grace & Frankie, New Girl) are experts in the best of the worst of cinema. On each episode of their award-winning podcast, HOW DID THIS GET MADE?
they gather with their funniest friends and subject themselves to a cinematic nightmare and report back to you with the results.
With over 160 episodes, past guests have included Adam Scott, Amy Schumer, Nick Kroll, Patton Oswalt, Whitney Cummings, Illana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Gillian Jacobs, Vanilla Ice, Chris Hardwick, Chelsea Peretti, Pete Davidson, Kumail Nanjani, Scott Aukerman and many more.
Every episode features the deconstruction and mockery of one particular film such as ‘Surf Ninjas’, ‘XXX: Return of Xander Cage’, ’The Room’, and the entire ’Fast and Furious’ franchise.
With sold out shows across the country, each live episode is truly unique as the audience gets to play a part in the show by asking questions of the hosts and coming up with impromptu songs for segments of the show and seeing one of a kind clips.
